I need your advice on vaginal discharge afterhysterectomy. It certainly shouldn't include blood, sinceyou can't have a period anymore. I know any blood after a hysterectomy meanssomething is broken, well bad. But I've heard there could be some. Brown vaginal discharge for a couple of weeksafter a hysterectomy is normal. I thought it would only last a few days. The red bloody discharge as incisions healis only a few days, while the brown ied blood can leak out over weeks.
So even without a period, I have to wear maxipads for another month or two. Don't use tampons. I know, they recommended against that, evenwith the expected discharge. If you lift anything heavythe six weeksafterward and get a rush of blood, get to the emergency room because you tore something. They gave me the same advice as when you havea kid â€“ don't lift anything heavier than a newborn. You can have bleeding because you tore thingshaving sex too soon after the hysterectomy
too. Let's just say surgery and vaginal dischargelike this are the exact opposite of the mood required for that to happen. Any spotting with a bad odor, though, is areason to see a . Even if it is a really bad yeast or bacterial infection, it needsto be treated. So the standard yeast infection with a beersmell is really bad right now. Yes. And a thick white curdish material comingout from an infection is also really bad. What other discharge should I be on the lookoutforé
Any thick yellow ainage is a possible infectionof the surgical wound, so you need to see the about that. Ditto if you can'tpee or poop. I'd certainly see a about not beingable to go to the bathroom. A warning sign is when it hurts to do so. They tell you to have laxatives and lots offiber to reduce the straining down there. If it burns when you pee, that's a urinarytract infection, but it could mean other bacteria arethe incisions. And green and yellowdischarge from the vagina means there definitely is.
So even though I can't have kids, I stillget a few more weeks of looking at the multicolored diaper pad insert. You are supposed to talk to the anytime there is bleeding heavier than light spotting and any discharge that has a badodor. Ifdoubt, ask the doc.
